Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey said LeBron James is the best player in the history of the NBA “by a bit of a big margin.”
Talking Wednesday in an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show, Morey said, “You look at his ability to generate wins and championship probability over time and you basically break that down. You don’t need all the numbers. You can watch as well and see that.
Morey has spent 12 seasons with the Rockets, 11 as head of basketball operations. Not sure his opinion means a whole lot. I think this is a debate that will live on forever.
Each generation feels they’re witnessing the GOAT, but to me, I’d take Michael Jordan any day of the week on the court. No one wanted it more than MJ. LeBron is definitely on the Mount Rushmore discussion, but not the greatest. This is why sports is fantastic.
